Oh Mylanta, I am so sorry I haven't been blogging for awhile. I have been a Busy. Little. Bee. (As that mean dude in Gladiator says to the sister he has incestual feelings toward.)
I've been doing a lot of this:
My friend, Megs, has started up an etsy where she sells cute things she sews - bibs, burp cloths, dresses, etc. She heard about this artisan fair they have here in the summer, and she decided to try to sell her wares there. She wondered if I wanted to try to sell my homemade cards at her booth with her, so I gathered them all together and then made 30 more thank-you cards. They're all the same design, but with different colors:
Guess what I made, folks? Drumroll please...
That's right. Three buckaroos. Paid the baby-sitter 35 bucks for being with my kids for 5 1/2 hours, and I made three.
So. Um. Not going to do that again...
And then the other thing that's taken up all my time - lawn care and gardening. My amazing dad trimmed my crazy Elm trees in the backyard:
I've also learned the ways of weed-whacking, specifically, not to weed-whack with capris on:
I planted some gorgeous geraniums:
I planted a new hosta in the shade - isn't it gorgeous???:
Planted some lobelia in the sun:
(Have I ever told you how much I like purple?)
And also planted some gorgeous petunias. These are called Prism Sunshine:
I got these little beauties for the sun, too, called Vincas. I'm a fan. They've proven to be very hardy and just adorable.
A lady down the street complimented me on my flower garden today, and I was soooooooooo flattered. I blushed and stammered and had pleasant feelings for hours afterward. :) Flowers make me happy. And compliments make me happy.
So that's what I've been doing. And I promise to be a better blogger from now on...
